Advancing technologies, hybrid working, globalisation, cost pressures, changing customer requirements and different employee expectations are just some of the issue's organisations are grappling with as they re-organise to meet structural and market challenges. 

In response to these challenges, much emphasis is going on re-organising, restructuring, bringing in new ways of working, re-designing roles, or changing other aspects of your organisation. Our two in-depth virtual programmes on Organisation Development and Organisation Design will give you the knowledge and skills needed when selecting and implementing organisation development and / or organisation design interventions. 

By providing both a theoretical understanding of organisation development and design issues, together with practical knowledge and skills, the combined programmes will help you gain the competence and confidence to deliver immediate, tangible results to your organisation. 

Below we provide details of both the Organisation Development and Organisation Design programmes, which provide real added value when completed in tandem.

Who is it for?

The combined programmes are recommended for HR and L&D professionals and change practitioners who want to gain insights and ideas and build knowledge and skills to deliver robust OD solutions. It is aimed at those who want to upskill in Organisation Development and Organisation Design, help organisations to understand the ‘current state’ and work towards an imagined or desired 'future state', identifying issues and opportunities, and effectively facilitating people, teams and organisations through change.

On the programme you will work with like-minded professionals, sharing and developing new ideas whilst immersing yourself in organisation design and organisation development.
